Don Quixote

I'm a brony, creative writer and dedicated drinker of coffee.


When the Alicorn Amulet, a cursed relic of unspeakable power, goes missing, Equestria begins to wither and die. The only ponies brave enough to prevent its annihilation are six misfits—a criminal, a malcontent, a reject, an outcast, an exile and a fool—who would have preferred to remain in the background and leave the heroics to someone else.

Like an onion, this story has layers.

"Twilight Sparkle Rescue Team" lolololol :ajsmug::flutterrage::pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh::raritystarry::twilightsheepish:

Vinyl just HAD to temp Fate, didn't she? Whatever happens, I'm placing the blame solely on her. :trollestia:

1.) It sounds like Ponyville's Time Gear got swiped. In fact, now that I think about it, the rise in chaos around Ponyville is disturbingly similar to what was happening while the Temporal Tower was destabilizing. :pinkiegasp:

2.) If the Doctor's involved, then anything could have taken the Alicorn Amulet.

3.) Poor Time Turner, he's just a replacement elected official!:fluttershysad:

You just couldn't prevent the fez, could you?:ajbemused:

I only see five character tags. Who's the sixth?

2880022 I was able to tag only five characters; Colgate is the sixth.

valley girl Lyra? seriously? And why isn't Colgate tagged?

2880125 Well, I could tag only five of the six protagonists. Someone had to be omitted, and it happened to be Colgate. (There was no way on Earth I would cut out Derpy or the Doctor!)

As for Lyra's personality: I wanted each character to have a distinct narrative style. Giving Lyra a ditzy persona was an easy way to distinguish her voice from the others... and it made her fun to write.

''I’ve tried to make it big, like Odyssey and MandoPony''

I see what did there.

I've been pleasantly surprised by this story, although Lyra is incredibly annoying.

Every time the Doctor gets into one of his 'poor me, I'm so old and pitiable and have seen so much death' moods I want to SMACK HIM! :flutterrage:
He's a thrice damned fool who needs to put up or shut up. Everyone sees death sooner or later. Grow up and appreciate the time you had instead of the time you don't YOU OLD FOOL! :flutterrage:

You may not be there when we want you, but you’re like, totally there when we need you. That’s why we only see you when there’s trouble, isn’t it? Healthy ponies don’t need a doctor—only sick ones do. You never stick around because you’ve got other ponies to help

That. That right there is the Doctor in a nutshell. :moustache:

To be concluded

No! It's too soon to end, at least give them a sequel.

To the misfits of the world, we raise our glasses to you! :twilightsmile:

I played Minty Fresh Adventure before I discovered this fic, so I can't imagine Colgate being treated like a malcontent.

There has to be a seqal to this. The six misfits and the super-world-take-overy-9000 or something. Why did the maker of this decide not to make fics anymore, WHYYYYYYYY!!!:raritycry:

2916939 Minty Fresh Adventure is awesome. :twilightsmile:

2951196 I'm glad you liked my silly story. :pinkiesmile: It's a sequel to a previous story, "Tales from the Background," so feel free to check it out if you enjoyed this one.

2953368 It's also completely contrary to the way you depicted Minty in this fic. Which I liked, BTW.

There a limit of 5 character tags.
